A man who barricaded himself inside a residence on Johns Island is now in custody.
The incident happened on the 3300 block of Walter Drive.
Charleston County Sheriff’s Office deputies originally responded shortly around 4 p.m. after receiving a call about alleged threats made against someone inside a home.
“At some point he had either threatened the roommate or associate with a knife and comments were also made about him possibly having a firearm,” said Captain Roger Antonio, the public information officer for the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies arrived, the suspect threatened to use a firearm.
SWAT and Crisis Negotiators responded and the incident lasted for several hours.
Walter Drive was closed to keep the public safe.
